Another way Trump has left a big mark so far is his impact on job creation. If you havenít already noticed, Trump has made an incredibly successful business empire for him and his family. So really, if there is any person who knows how to create jobs, itís Trump. According to Infowars, since Trump took office, there have already been about 300,000-plus jobs created. This happened so dramatically because of Trumpís belief in strong business and his cutting of regulations on large corporations, allowing them to be more flexible in the decisions that they make such as worker selection.
Carrier plant that Trump helped save will cut 300 jobs right before Christmas
Donald Trump may have convinced Carrier not to move its Indianapolis furnace plant to Mexico. But the company is still shipping about 300 of its jobs to Mexico right before Christmas. by Chris Isidore @CNNMoney May 23, 2017: 1:27 PM ET
The president is claiming a big victory on getting Americans back to work again.
"Businesses that were bleeding jobs unleashed the longest streak of job creation on record," Obama wrote in a letter to the American people this week.
He's right: The economy has added jobs for 75 straight months, although his overall jobs gains aren't as strong as some prior presidents.
The U.S. added 15.9 million jobs under President Ronald Reagan and a whopping 22.9 million under President Bill Clinton if you look at how many Americans were employed in the last full month they were in office versus the January when they were sworn in.
Obama did outpace President George W. Bush though. Bush is in the back of the pack among recent presidents who served two terms. Only 2.1 million jobs were added during Bush's full tenure.
No shock that Obama is not telling the truth.
Obama told Black Enterprise magazine in an interview published last week: "we are digging ourselves out of a deep hole." But Obama's claim of creating 4.5 million jobs that he reiterated again on Thursday is simply wrong. Not only do we have fewer jobs in the U.S. today than when Obama first became president, nothing has been done for the 8 million additional working age people. By anyone's definition, this is not a "recovery."
